  • When she is awake does she act normal? If so, then I wouldn't worry too much. If she doesn't act normal, then I would call the DR. GL

  • Her body is probably trying to recoop after being sick. If she is lethargic when she is awake and just wanting to lay on the couch to watch tv or sleep some more...I would bring her in.

  • If she is coughing while she is sleeping, she probably isn't getting enough sleep. My children will be exhausted when they wake up, if they were coughing in the middle of the night. Putting a vapor rub on their chest and feet help them not cough too much while they were sleeping. They wake up ready to face the day because they are not tired.
